Is Something "Abnormal" Evolving in US Deaths
Is the significant increase in Deaths due to "Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified" due to the vaccines?
There has been a dramatic increase in deaths due to “Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified” (R00-R99)
This does NOT correlate with COVID-19 mortality.
What explanation do we have for this other than the COVID vaccines??
Why is the CDC not reporting this?
The total number of R00-R99 Deaths in 2021 currently stands at 74,438. This value will rise as reporting is completed. This is an excess of 41,495 deaths (compared to the average of five years prior to COVID, 2015-2019). To put that into context, that is more than the actual 31,737 flu deaths reported by the CDC for 2015-thru-2019 combined! (The CDC reports flu & pneumonia together. This practice has the effect of exaggerating the impact of the flu. It’s also worth noting that the average of the combined deaths over the same period was 54,635.)
Below is a summary plot. There is a progression in the main text of the article. As you can see, there is no correlation between the various waves of COVID deaths and the surge in “Abnormal”.
While not commonly included in the annual lists of Leading Causes of Death, likely because it is an ambiguous “catch all category”, R00-R99 deaths averaged around 33,000 per year from 2015 thru 2019. That would rank in the 13th-15th place on par with Hypertension, Parkinson’s and Septicemia.
This first plot is for Weekly Deaths in the United States for all select causes. All deaths are on the left scale with the exception of All Causes and Natural Causes using the right side scale. I used common terms for the diseases, but the formal classifications in alphabetical order are as follows: Alzheimer disease (G30) , Cerebrovascular diseases (I60-I69) , Chronic lower respiratory diseases (J40-J47) , COVID-19 (U071, Multiple Cause of Death) , COVID-19 (U071, Underlying Cause of Death) , Diabetes mellitus (E10-E14) , Diseases of heart (I00-I09,I11,I13,I20-I51) , Influenza and pneumonia (J09-J18) , Malignant neoplasms (C00-C97) , Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis (N00-N07,N17-N19,N25-N27) , Other diseases of respiratory system (J00-J06,J30-J39,J67,J70-J98) , Septicemia (A40-A41) , and Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified (R00-R99) .
My original interest was to see which other causes saw spikes in deaths coinciding with COVID waves. In states hit hard early in the pandemic, there were spikes in deaths for causes such as Alzheimer’s that may have been COVID-related and thus undercounted. So I was curious if this pattern carried through all of 2020, and now through most of 2021. COVID, Heart Disease and Cancer dominate the scale and it is only Heart Disease that shows discernible increase correlating to COVID.
By this point almost every state in the nation has experienced at least two significant waves, and for many we are in the upswing of our fourth or even fifth discernable wave. The “drop offs” after the 12/1/2021 marker are due to incomplete reporting and should not be interpreted as a decreasing trend.
Despite the compacted scale for the majority of the Select Causes, the curve for one stuck out to me: R00-R99. The second plot here shows just the more general COVID curve on the right scale, and all of the lesser Select Causes on the left scale.
Here it really raises eyebrows. There are small COVID-correlated increases in deaths of “usual suspect” causes (e.g. Diabetes), but the numbers of deaths are generally in line with seasonal and annual fluctuations. Then there’s the Abnormal R00-R99.
The R00-R99 Category Deaths not only increase roughly 5-fold over baseline, but also show no correlation to COVID-19 waves.
Perhaps this is a seasonal thing that simply wasn’t seen in 2020? NO!! Going back a full decade (using CDC Wonder 3 ), it is clear that deaths classified in this category are remarkably consistent and generally not seasonal. ( The Wonder data is monthly, and I adjusted to Weekly rate, these curves are also smoother because of this.)
THIS IS HUGE!!!
It is actually quite shocking and scary to note that the absolute number of deaths per week EXCEEDS many historical seasonal surges for Flu & Pneumonia deaths.
What happened so that these deaths increased slightly earlier in the year and then increased dramatically the second half of the year?
Could it be the vaccines? I don’t see another explanation!
Just to be sure, since different regions of the US have experienced COVID differently, and Delta was the predominant variant in the second half of the year, I did some summary plots for R00-R99 and COVID for a few representative large states.
I am at a loss to think of any explanation for why we now have five times as many dying of “Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified”.
There is NO correlation to COVID deaths.
The “Abnormal” surge is fairly consistent across the nation in terms of timing.
R00-R99 Deaths are a virtual flatline for at least a decade, with no significant seasonal trend.
The introduction and mass use of COVID vaccines — primarily the mRNA Pfizer and Moderna vaccines — is the only likely explanation.
The number of deaths involved is NOT inconsequential.
The total exceeds the average annual deaths from Influenza & Pneumonia (combined) for the five years prior to 2020.
The increase in deaths is on par with all deaths from Parkinson’s Disease or Septicemia each year, two causes that regularly make the “Top 15” list.
The increase in deaths exceeds the combined deaths from Influenza for the past five flu seasons!
It is CRIMINAL that the CDC is not addressing this deadly wave.
